If a PS2 wont turn on, whats the problem usually?
If a PS2 wont turn on, whats the problem usually? –
I have a brother-in-law that tired to mod his playstaion 2 - 2 months ago. I had no idea he even tried! He says that he installed a matrix infinity. He solderered all the points, tested it (with the wires installed but WITHOUT the modchip - it was still in the mail from hong kong) and it booted. He turned it off, took the motherboard out and waited for his modchip to arrive. Then he got the idea he wanted to see if his laser was good so he put it back together the same as he did the night before, and it would not boot. (he was going to try a burned DVD to see if he had a good enough laser) No red light at all. No power to the system. What are the possible problems with it? Did his powersupply go out? is it possible it wont even boot if its a failed mod attempt? I am thinking the power supply just went out on it but i have no idea and no way to test.
Its a version 5. He installed the matrix infinity but that didnt help so it has just been sitting here.
EDIT: i think he also said some a couple wires got pulled out so he resoldered them, but thats only after it turned on

Check the fuse on the power supply and the motherboard.
Get magnify glass and check bios points.(ponm,qtuvrw.)
Make sure no solder bridge.)
